My coop is competing in a regatta where each team should have 9 players racing. The first place team finished with a perfect score of 9x16x135 points in just a few hours. When I first looked at that team, they weren't yet finished, and racing indicators showed they had just 6 members racing. A few minutes later, after they finished accruing points, the racing indicators showed they had only 5 members racing. How could it be possible for a team with only 5 members racing to accrue maximum points for 9 players?

We strongly suspect cheating on the part of the 1st place team, and although several of us have reported the issue to the help desk staff, we are all being completely ignored.
